Cleared up IBD
on October 27, 2013
I don't write many reviews but this food really helped my cat. Fed him Iams for 10 yrs thinking it was good for him. It's actually like feeding him McDonalds. Okay once in a while but not daily. He started having blood in stool randomly for 3 yrs and we took him to vet and had expensive lab tests and x-rays. Vet thought it was IBD and gave us Prednisone. I did research and tried to change food before giving meds as a last resort. Tried Buffalo Blue, Royal Canin, Orijen, Iams Essentials, Natures Variety, Wellness, and Natures Variety raw food. The higher end foods all did the same thing. About halfway through the transition between foods, stool became soft and then diarrhea. Almost gave up and put him on meds, then saw this food at Petco and read about it. He transitioned to it with no problems and has been eating it now for 10 months. 1 month after switching to this food the blood stopped in his stool and has not returned. He is 15 yrs old and is happy and healthy. We give him a scoop of Halo Spots Stew wet food in the morning and evening and leave the dry food out for him all day. His weight has also stabilized and is coat is really soft. Compare the labels on the different brands. Spots Stew no grain chicken works great for our cat. We don't feed him table scraps and only give him water to drink. He has a lot more energy now (at least as much as a cat can have). I wasn't paid by anyone or given anything free to try for this review. I am just sharing my frustrating experience of searching for the right cat food. If your cat is sick, talk to your vet and do your own research if he says it's IBD.
